Reviews & Ratings
The Philadelphia Story (1940, M-G-M)
A witty, sparkling adaptation of Philip Barry’s Broadway hit, The Philadelphia Story was the comeback success for Katharine Hepburn who, just two years earlier, had been labeled box office poison by Screenplay Magazine.
A classic romantic comedy/farce of love and marriage, class distinction and redemption, the film earned Jimmy Stewart his only Best Actor Oscar™ along with an award for screenplay and four other nominations including best picture.
Director George Cukor received outstanding performances from Hepburn, Stewart, Cary Grant and Ruth Hussey.
The Philadelphia Story is a perfect Valentine’s Day treat for lovers.
